Everyone has a preferred method of ingesting/applying their CBD Oil. What’s yours? For those not in the know, there are 6 main ways – and they are listed below.
Swallow and Ingest CBD
Perhaps the most common way to take CBD is simply to swallow pure CBD oil. When you ingest CBD oil, it passes through the digestive system and is metabolized by the liver, eventually delivering its active compounds to your bloodstream.
Medical Marijuana, Inc.’s Real Scientific Hemp OilTM (RSHOTM) is pure CBD hemp oil packaged in an easy-to-use oral applicator. Simply squeeze your serving of CBD oil onto a finger or spoon and place it on your tongue before swallowing. RSHOTM comes in three label varieties – Green, Blue, and Gold giving you the choice between our non-decarboxylated, decarboxylated, and filter options.
Looking for the highest concentration of CBD? The 3g oral applicator of RSHOTM Gold Label contains an incredible 720mg of CBD.
If you value convenience, you may prefer getting your daily intake of CBD with easy-to-swallow CBD oil capsules, which can be quickly taken with a swig of water.
Hold CBD Under Your Tongue
Another popular method for taking CBD – and my personal favorite – is to apply and hold it under the tongue so that the mucous membranes in the mouth can absorb CBD and the other active compounds found in CBD oil. This sublingual application offers faster delivery because the CBD and hemp oil’s other natural constituents get to bypass the digestive system and metabolization by the liver.
Products like Dixie Botanicals® 1oz. Dew Drops tinctures and RSHOTM 1 oz. tinctures are popular sublingual choices for those new to CBD. RSHOTM MCT oil liquids – particularly the Blue and Gold Label Liquids — are also top choices and lend themselves to this method of application.
Over the past 12-18 months, vaping CBD has grown in popularity among health-conscious consumers. Vaping offers a lung-friendly method for inhaling CBD oil, allowing CBD and other trace cannabinoids to be absorbed through the lung’s large absorptive surface area before they’re diffused into the bloodstream.
When you’re first beginning to vape CBD, it’s best to start simple. A CBD vaporizer pen is easy to use. All you need to do is charge the base, thread the pre-packaged cartridge of CBD oil onto the pen, push a button to turn it on, and inhale using the mouthpiece. HempVap® Starter Kit has everything you need to get started, and refill CBD hemp oil cartridges are available when you’re ready for more.
Chew CBD As Gum
There’s likely not a more enjoyable way to get your daily CBD than by chewing a piece of CBD gum. Pop in a piece after your morning cup of coffee or once you’ve finished lunch to freshen your breath while getting CBD.
Each piece CanChew® Gum contains 50mg of non-GMO hemp oil and 10mg of CBD.
Mix CBD With Your Favorite Food or Drink
Looking for a seamless method for adding CBD into your daily life? Try blending CBD into your favorite foods or drinks. Adding CBD to your already-prepared healthy foods is not just easy, but it may also improve how well the CBD is absorbed. Fatty acids found in foods can serve as carriers for cannabinoids like CBD, allowing them to move through the body for faster processing.
Add Green, Blue, or Gold Label RSHOTM MCT Liquids to foods and beverages like:
- Acai bowls
- Ice cream
Almost any food or beverage can become your own personalized CBD edible.
Rub CBD On Your Skin
You can apply some CBD products directly onto the skin. The CBD and other active ingredients found in topical CBD products like lotions and salves are absorbed into the skin so that they can interact with cells near the surface without entering the bloodstream. Hemp CBD oil contains CBD and many fatty acids, proteins, vitamins, and other nutrients that play a vital role in the health of your skin.
CBD hemp oil salves from RSHOTM and Dixie Botanicals® are designed to nourish and hydrate troubled areas. Try Cannabis Beauty Defined®’s Anti-Aging CBD Hemp Oil Salve for spa-like relief and moisturizing, or Cibaderm®’s Hemp Oil Hydrate Hand Cream & Lotion to restore youthfulness to your skin.
CBD oil is not meant only for humans, animals as well can benefit from the use of CBD oil. For example, it has been proven that cbd oil helps to relieve dog anxiety and other medical conditions.
